150mm tall, 19 points of articulation. 1st May release, 2,500 Yen (inclusive of tax).

For those who can't wait till May 1st, Kaiyodo has another option for you: a special advance sales version of this Revoltech Fraulein for Movie Version Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: Face Chapter.

This advance sales version will come with Boota the mole pig. However, this will only be a mail-order only limited edition. Pre-order starts February 6th, and release date is early April (one month before the regular version). The price is 4,000 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Apart from having Boota, the list of equipment seem to be the same as the regular version.

So, Boota is 1,500 Yen... Wow... O_O

I think I'll wait. ^^;

6 BB Senshi Sangokuden kits in two months, Bandai's strategy is really out of anyone's anticipation now. ^^; I really hope this Shiba-I Sazabi 大太府 Ver. will be an upgraded version of the original release, maybe like Emperor Ryuubi.

If it's just a plated version, or one that comes with an extra backdrop, then I'll have two Shiba-I Sazabi ^^;

For those who held out on BB Senshi 00 Gundam, congratulations! ^^ 00 Raiser is coming, so you won't end up with two 00 Gundam. As for those who already got 00 Gundam, despair not, Bandai didn't officially announced that a singular release of O Raiser is not going to happen. Now it's your turn to wait for that ^^;

For a 400 Yen kit, it's indeed possible, since Bandai has announced a 400-Yen kit in the BB Senshi Sangokuden series: the soldier unit coming in April. It's will be the one with the lowest price tag in the series. Is it the same as the prize item previously? No info. on that yet.
